We make it our mission to help our students explore and develop their talents, wherever their curiosity and interests lead them. We've witnessed thousands of students transform their lives in ways they never imagined possible.


Teaching rock, blues, metal, country, and classical guitar lessons on electric and acoustic guitars.


Whether you want to learn a classical sonatina, rock chords, or popular sheet music, our teachers are happy to help you become the pianist you want to be.


All voice students set goals with their teacher to work on sounding like their favorite recording artists, preparing for a theatre audition, or if they prefer, to develop their own unique voice. ​


Drum language can be complex and our instructors will challenge any drummer with a wide variety of technical exercises designed to improve your speed and comfort.


Our violin instructors will teach all styles of music, from learning to play by ear to reading music. If you want to play classical music or the fiddle, we have a teacher for you.

Annual rock show performance with onsite music recitals!

We are one of the only music schools in Nutley that offers recitals several times a year on a Steinway Model A grand piano. Every couple of months, many of our students choose to perform in our recitals. We hold these onsite on our Darling Ave. location. Trophies are awarded at recitals, and refreshments served at the end of each one.

Advanced and Intermediate piano students perform on a 9 foot Steinway Model D grand piano every year in June at the Leshowitz Recital Hall at Montclair State University. Special trophies are awarded to every performer. Special plaques for graduating high school seniors are awarded for their years of dedication and performance at this event.
